How to Be a Woman

Caitlin Moran, read by the author. HarperAudio, unabridged, digital download, 8.75 hrs., $21.99 ISBN 978-0-06-225013-1

Speaking on everything even remotely related to being a woman in today’s society, the hilarious Caitlin Moran offers plenty of insight into her life and times in this book aimed at enlightening women (and any brave men). Relating personal tales from her years as a youth, teenager, and finally as wife, mother, and professional writer, Moran narrates in an off-the-cuff tone that is at once down-to-earth and inviting. Her performance is reminiscent of an old friend offering solid advice without ever being preachy or didactic. Moran’s stories are entertaining, and her narration demonstrates an inherent skill at performance. While some men won’t understand some of her more subtle references to womanhood, they will find it hard to not chuckle at Moran’s outlook on life. A Harper Perennial paperback. (Sept.)
